Celebrating Our Proud History
Founded in 1868
Founded in 1868, Keystone Academy began offering instruction the following year in the local Baptist church in Factoryville. The Academy moved to the newly completed Harris Hall in 1870. At the time it was chartered, the Academy was the only high school between Binghamton, N.Y., and for over 65 years served the secondary educational needs of the community admirably. In 1934, the Academy was rechartered as an independent junior college. The College received formal approval to offer baccalaureate degree programs in 1998 and in 2013 expanded its academic offerings to include master’s degrees.
